Paramore is a band that we’ve featured on Like Totally 80s in the past. Not because they are a band from the 80s, but because their latest tracks and album contain a heavy 80s influence. Now, the band has released a new 80s inspired music video for “Rose-Colored Boy” that triggers a big of nostalgia.
“The video, which was directed by The Weeknd and Haim collaborator Warren Fu, features the band playing a very ’80s-looking news team putting on a happy front when the cameras are on, and hounded by TV execs to ‘smile more’ when they’re not,” according to NME.
“Later, front woman Hayley Williams is faced with an image of her younger self before having an out-of-body experience.”
The big 80s hair is all over this video especially when it comes to Williams, the Paramore front-woman. The track does feature a few 80s notes as well, just like the album, After Laughter. It’s often nice to see bands paying homage to the decade we love and we have to say we aren’t disappointed in this at all. The video is quite funky and possibly one that all 80s fans may enjoy.
